2014 Medical Humanities Summer Course

September 7-12, 2014, Padua, Italy

The Fondazione Lanza (Center for Advanced Studies in Ethics, Padova – Italy ), in collaboration with the Chair of the History of Medicine at the University of Padua and the Department of Medical Humanities at the University of Marmara in Istanbul, is pleased to announce the first edition of the Summer Course in Medical Humanities, which will be held in Padua and Venice from Sunday 7 to Friday 12 September, 2014.

For its innovative approach and the importance and usefulness of the topics that will be touched, as well as for the ethical values represented by the different arts in different ages, we believe that such a course can be addressed to all the professionals who have to deal with the care and assistance to the sick and suffering as well as experts in bioethics and all the students of history of medicine and arts. Within the course there will be a section dedicated to paper/poster presentation.

The Course Program is available on the website:
